Hey guys, I have a friend of mine on another site right now who is putting together a little road trip for sometime in the first week of June. Here is the info he has posted right now, and the date for sure is going to be in the first week of June! We are kinda hoping for a somewhat big turnout, so I figured I'd advertise:D. Here is the info:

Alright, I'm mainly trying to gauge interest from Michigan members but any one else who wants to come is more then welcome! There's a GREAT section of road up in the Keweenaw Peninsula in the U.P. of Michigan. This road is not widely known as it's so remote. There's little traffic and even fewer police, not that I would ever advise speeding on this road with it's twists.

There's sections of this road that are seem very narrow because of the tree density on both sides of the road and the trees coming right up to the shoulder. This is mostly only known by car enthusiasts that happen to attend Michigan Tech which is a short drive away. I'm gonna road trip there summer 2010, probably sometime in June or July.

I'd like to gauge interest for a group who wants to go up and stay at a hotel the night before, drive the road counter-clockwise, and then depending on the time we could either stay at the hotel again or drive back to my parents house in the Eastern U.P. for a free place to stay the night.

Here's the road for any one interested. Google Maps

We'd be taking 26 up to Copper Harbor from Phoenix and 41 back.

When? Shooting for the 1st or 2nd weekend of June

I'm interested. I don't live far from jim2029. I'm about 40 minutes east of him in Tawas City. I'll be teaching in Tawas until the middle of June; around June 16. Is this going to be a guy/girl and their car thing, or can we bring anyone for the ride? Let us know with more details as you get a specific date.

That would be one hell of a drive. I would be going from close to the lowest point of mi to the highest lol. Depending on what I have going on and how much funds I have, I may be able to make it but who knows.
